Is there a way to freshen the house windows up. Aside from rescreening the screens which is not the funnest thing to do what else can I do to keep the
factory windows as air tight and bug proof as possible. Reason this is coming up is beacause we stayed at a free campsite in Nebraska last night that
I'm sure was the mosquito apocalypse. There must have been a hundred in the camper which did not please the girlfriend in the least. Besides swapping
out to the new windows with just the bottoms 1/4 windows opening is there anything I can do. We really the windows but they need just a little bit of
love.
Thanks

Do you still have the window screens?
We repaired ours and bought a bug zapper.
The bug zapper can be entertaining.

The plastic window track is available.  A friend got hers from Cinnabar and got enough to do two coaches.  She gave me the leftovers in exchange for a
favor, and I was able to replace mine.  The windows slide much better now, although I think a good cleaning and some silicone lube might have been
almost as effective.

While I had my screens out, I had them re-screened at a local Ace Hardware.  They did them no problem after another Ace said the screen spline was too
small and they didn't have the proper tools to do the job.  It made a big difference, in both comfort and appearance.  I also got some new window
latches from Cinnabar at Nancy's suggestion.  They fit perfectly.  Applied might also handle these products.

Just FYI - I had a bug invasion at a Michigan State Park on Lake Huron; seemed like 1000's of gnats or young mosquitoes all over the headliner... I
discovered the vacuum cleaner did a fantastic job clearing them out!
